Add the Penne pasta and give a quick stir. Cook until the pasta is almost
tender, and gradually begin adding the bite-sized cubes of ricotta cheese into the mixture
1-2 at a time. Cover for 2 minutes. After that, remove from heat and uncover until it
thickens a bit. Stir once, and continue letting it thicken while releasing some steam.
